NoA2 approved, but now consulate suspending visas issuance
7:36 am August 1, 2020

My NOA2 got approved way after I learned that the US secretary had ordered a visa suspension for all Lao nationals per section 243(d) of Immigration and Nationality act (see attachment) with limited exceptions so long as they could prove to the consular on why (see attachment). Nearly giving me a heart attack, I sent the US consulate in Laos an email to clarify whether if K-1 visas were affected. I got a vague statement between yes and no (see attachment), which doesn't do anything concrete for me. I had also posted on here asking how I should approach this - I had folks tell me that I shouldn't worry because K-1s weren't affected by it, which in itself isn't assuring either, because now I'm getting mixed messages. Honestly, I don't want to bank on anything less than concrete, so I'm gonna prepare for worst case scenario - filing a waiver for exceptions. My questions are:

1) How does the applicant prove they are not a threat to the national security or public safety of the US to consulars.

2) How does the applicant prove exceptional hardship if denied issuance of visa at this time to consulars?

3) Would it be worth it to get my Representatives and Senators involved by preparing a statement and sending it along with my fiance?

4) What else should I do to level our chances of being one of those limited exceptions?

I probably chose the goddamn worst year to file this petition (COVID19 + IMMIGRATION BANS). Link to US Embassy in Laos: https://la.usembassy.gov/visas/immigrant-visas/

Thanks in advance!

Hello. After much persistence, patience, and nervous breakdown, I finally get this email from the USCIS. Does this mean it's approved or being decided if it's gonna be approved?

Long wait time

I understand this is a waiting game, but I feel my application has been way overdue and it's making me anxious. My partner is from Laos and we are a same-sex couple. It's been approx 8.5 months since they have recieved it. Am I the only one or are other folks in the same boat as well?

What are the next steps I should take? I tried emailing twice with not much success. I haven't tried calling yet, because I wanted to get other folks to weigh in on what I should or should not be doing. There was a recent suspension on all Lao immigrant visas, however, I am not sure if our application has been affected by that or will be affected by the suspension?

I'm feeling pretty defeated and hopeless right now.
